Miracle 10: Super C

From the time I was 8 until I was around 10 years old, I had some strange breakouts that plagued me (and my poor Mother while we were in France!).  I got teased quite a bit because of it.  When kids called me the traditional, silly, childhood names reserved for acne I wasn’t really bothered because they were mislabeling the issue.  They weren’t zits, but nobody really knew what was going on with my face.  At one point it all just cleared up, and since then I’ve always been the kind of person who found pride in being able to wash my makeup off with soap and water and still have pretty flawless skin.

Reflections on my time in Busan for weteachkorea.com

A few weeks ago my friend Luke, who I travelled to Japan with a few years back and played football alongside while I was living in Korea, contacted me with regard to writing a lifestyle/opinion piece on my time in Busan for his new website; weteachkorea.com

Back in 2009 I was still at UBC, living in Vancouver and working at a salon and a cupcake shop.  I was also part of the University of British Columbia Opera Chorus, and through some miracle ended up being cast in a tour to China.  The even bigger miracle?  I could actually afford to go!

This was my first experience with Asia, and I had no idea what to expect.  I had done a ton of research, but nothing could have prepared me for what I was about to see and experience.

A messy introduction

A messy world : for those who are wondering why did i put that name, well, because world around me is pretty messy and i am much more messier lol  :D  that was not a rational explanation either but who wants to be rational anyways? We all live in our own fantasies, where we want to believe life is a fairy tale, one day a prince will come in horse and rescue us from all our pain and sorrows, and we’ll be living happily ever after blah blah…. Some times i want to curse Snow White, Cinderella, all the stories of রাজা- রানী for ruining our sense of reality. But then I realize that losing sense of reality is all we got to live for. All we got to dream, all we got to hope. Like thinking one day all our problems will be gone and we’ll have a happy ending.

How to Say ‘Cute’ in Korean

Ever wondered how to say ‘cute’ in Korean? Unlike English, the Korean word for cute is used a lot! You can use it to describe something cute, such as a puppy or doll, or you can use the word to pay somebody a compliment.

In fact, many people in Korea want to be seen as ‘cute’, and will behave in ‘cute’ ways. This is known as 애교 (aegyo). People acting in this way will be pleased to hear you describe them as ‘cute’, so make sure you learn this word so that you can make lots of friends in Korea.

Note: If you want to say cute as in ‘handsome’, such as ‘check out that cute guy over there’, then you should use the word for handsome instead.


How I got my first job in Korea

 

When was the last time you did something for the first time?  If it’s been so long that you can’t remember, I would consider that an issue.  In August of 2014 I found that I was asking myself that same question over and over again.  I took every possible opportunity to go try something new.  I took a card-sewing class (yes, you read that right), a brew-master’s tour, adult ballet (and barre) classes, did a scotch-tasting (okay, that one wasn’t quite so new), a Ukranian egg-decorating class (yep – wax, dip, and dye over and over again), and I dined in the dark at a restaurant where all the servers were blind.  We had scheduled axe-throwing and stand-up comedy classes, but ultimately I was just too busy with such an extremely demanding job.
